Hanging basket 2 weeks later

Here is my basket at week 2.  I love that it doesn't dry out and is so easy to care for.

Easy hanging baskets!

1.  Assemble materials:  Basket ( I found a birdcage at Ross), Sphagnum moss, potting soil, disposable diapers, plants.

 2.  Line basket with moss
 3.  Lay disposable diapers on top of moss.  The diaper material absorbs water and keeps the basket from drying out.
 4.  Mix in potting soil and fertilizer on top of diapers and start to add some plants that poke through the sides of the basket

 5.  Remove curious dog from the basket
6.  Add more plants and tuck in more moss around sides.  Sprinkle with water and hang.
